Each team that makes it from the entrance to the exit without falling in, earns a point, and the team with the most points at the end of the episode wins a cool $10,000. The show made a big impression on fans when it debuted in June, in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic when millions were confined to their homes.

Netflix announced in July that Floor Is Lava was watched by 37 million Netflix member households in its first four weeks.Floor Is Lava is executive produced by Anthony Carbone, who also serves as showrunner for the game show.
